On Sunday (Dec. 10), Olympics gold medalist Simone Biles couldn't wait to share her excitement the first-ever honorary Houston Texans cheerleader. Is there a moment when this girl is not winning?
Dressed in the legendary red boots, the 20-year-old let her over 1 million Twitter followers in on the moment by posting highlights from the big event.
While her excitement was matched with loads of praise and congrats, there were a few trolls that were more concerned about her shoulder-length hair that was blown out of place. Duh, she's cheering!
Sadly, that didn't stop Twitter from going in — even after Simone commented on the thread asking them to excuse her hair and made it clear she "just came straight from a 4 hour practice w/ my hair in a bun."
“What’s wrong with my hair? I’m like, I just made history and people are focused on my hair? It can be bald or short, it doesn’t matter about [my] hair,” Simone told the Associated Press in 2012. “Nothing is going to change. I’m going to wear my hair like this during beam and bar finals. You might as well stop talking about it.”
Seemingly taking note from her 2016 US Olympic women’s gymnastic teammate, Simone had a message for her haters:
Yes to the classy clapback! Our thoughts exactly. When can we stop focusing on people's flaws and put energy towards what they excel at instead? Just some food for thought as we approach 2018.
